  • Rostellaria rubicunda Perry, 1811

Rostellaria rubicunda Perry, 1811, pl. 11, fig. 1

Comment Petit, 2003

  • "Mathews & Iredale (1912: 9, 10; R. rubicauda [sic] on p. 9) considered this to be the same shell figured by Chemnitz (1795, figs. 1874–1875) later named Strombus erythrinus Dillwyn, 1817. Abbott (1960: 80) did not consider the figures to be equivalent and stated that Perry's "extremely poor figure probably represents some sort of buccinid." Although Perry’s figures may be stylized copies of the Chemnitz figure, they are certainly not identifiable."
